strand. which is prestressed concrete strand. at his visit to american spring wire, mr. romney hammered away at president obama for not being tough on china. not the way that he mitt romney would be tough on china. but the company mr. romney chose for his backdrop that day, the company that he chose to implicitly help make that case so happened to be a poster child for success by president obama in getting tough on china. in 2009 in the first months of mr. obama's presidency, american spring wire joined with two other makers of steel wire to ask for help. they said china was unfairly dumping steel wire in the united states market at artificially low prices. they asked for help. under president obama the commerce department said they would investigate and then the commerce department did move to protect american spring wire. they did crack down on china for dumping their underpriced product. thus benefiting american spring wire in exactly the way they had asked to be benefited. they got the help they wanted. a company that was then used as a backdrop for mitt romney saying president obam
romney is mr. romney's greatest handicap. this newspaper yearns for the more tolerant conserve t.i. of ronald reagan where it meant keeping the state out of people bead rooms as well as out of their businesses. mr. romney shows no signs of wanting to revive it." now, you know romney has become right wing when you look for the compassionate conservatism of ronald reagan. they also continue. "for all his business-like intentions mr. romney has an economic plan that works only if you don't believe most of what he says. that's not a convincing pitch for chief executive. and for all his short comings mr. obama has dragged america's economy back from the brink of disaster and has made a decent first of foreign policy. so this newspaper would stick with the devil it knows and re-elect him." now, if you call the guy you're endorsing the devil you know, that's one hell of an elbow! all right. worse than the devil

said that's the flag on the flag pole here next to mr. romney. ained reached over and grabbed the flag and pulled it out and the was as if electricity was running through my arm because i thought about the people who lost their lives and they walked in danger's way for learning, for something bigger than themselves, for us. i think of our men and women in uniform and their willing tons walk in harm's way for us, for freedom. [applause] i have a favorite verse in one of our 2345rb8 hems, america the beautiful. in that hem him we talk about the mountains majesty and all the characters of our land but there is a verse that touches me more deeply that says heroes proved in liberating strife who more than self-their country love and mercy more than life. what our veterans and members of the armed forces raise your hand so we can recognize you? [applause] thank you. it is part of the american national character to live for things bigger than yourself. some do that in extraordinary ways, invisible ways, other do it in meaningful ways in their lives and family's life. my sister is a hero to me

bless you, god bless america and god bless the next first lady of the united states, mrs. ann romney. ♪ >> i'm so touched backstage listening to this extraordinary woman. to be able to stand next to a woman like her and know that she and jack represent so much of what we love about america. they are such wonderful examples to us. it really brought tears to my eyes thinking about how amazing it is. to think anyone like that would even know who we are because i have add mired jack all of my life and add mired his way of living. his way of achieving his greatness in so many areas outside of the golf course. and i know -- [applause] i know ohio is their home state and this is where so many of you folks know them and love them. and as so many americans across the country admire and respect them. i'm also humbled to be on this stage with so many extraordinary women. and there's a few men. this is great. jane mentioned we're on the girl's bus. i really like rolling with the girls let me just tell you will right now. i've had a great time with cindy mccain, she was with me in virgi
. if the storm passed enough and opportunity to take part in recovery and clean-up action. possible mr. romney would head for the seacoast. at this point, all carefully choreographed final stage craft in final day of the campaign have been dashed. 200 hours less, really, before the election. exactly a week from tomorrow. the romney campaign doesn't exactly know what it will be doing for the next 24 to 48 hours. >> bret: still question mar marks. >> very much so. >> bret: still ahead, more inconsistencies between what the obama administration knew and what it said about the libya terror attack. first, karl rove and joe trippi on who is ahead in the presidential voting and what really matters, the electoral college map. we do it every week. coming up. as we head to break, cape may, new jersey, look in darkness there at the rin and the wind. keep it here. i know the name of eight princesses. i'm an expert on softball. and tea parties. i'll have more awkward conversations than i'm equipped for because i'm raising two girls on my own. i'll worry about the economy more than a few times before they'r
the election, mr. romney again put sort of more refinements to his closing arguments. he started the day in wisconsin. and paul ryan, his running mate's home state, and he outlined the state as he has all week by saying it's a choice between the stagnation of the status quo owe lama economy and the bold chain he, mitt romney, argues. he argues it will take bipartisan help. and he argues that he can, and tuesday voters have to vote for change. obviously a borrowed line from the obama campaign of '08. listen. >> if you believe america should be on a better course, if you are tired of being tired, then i ask you to vote for real change. paul ryan and i will bring real change to america from day one! >> day one, bold change, and here with 96 hours before the polls actually open on tuesday, kid rock was the opening act here a little while ago. they are predicting as many as 20,000 to 30,000. that would be the biggest crowd he's gotten in the entire campaign. >> tired of being tired. it's a big sprint ahead, karl. >> it's a crazy one. thed 6 -- the 96 hours, he will have 14 or 15 events, he wi
is the wall street journal on that story. even as mr. romney and mr. obama canceled a political appearances tuesday, the two campaigns -- escalated a heated exchange over mitt romney suggestion that the president also bailout had benefited china. he returned to pennsylvania in hopes of returning the momentum. the story wall street journal goes on to talk about that many have come out including those in the auto industry to say that the governor was wrong on this ad, that he is running in the state of ohio. we will talk about that more in about 10 minutes when reid wilson of the hot line joins us to talk about october surprises and all things campaign 2012. democratic caller, go ahead. caller: i think one of the things people are not realizing , and people who think the global warming who does not exist -- here's an issue. there was a geologist on cnn in explained that a cold front came in from the northwest, right through chicago. one day last week we were sitting at 80 degrees. the next we were sitting at 40 degrees. we went from 80 to 40. that cold front was directly down to the gulf of m
you. overall, mr. romney, governor romney at the time, he left the state with debt. you hear how we set up a slush fund and all these great things he did for the state, which are totally untrue. i have to say, i have lived in new hampshire and a town over from where his vacation home is. the campaign itself, where he is changing positions it, from the time he was governor of massachusetts from what he is saying today, he has totally changed his whole direction. he was pro-life when he was the governor in massachusetts and now he is -- or he was not pro- life back then, and now he's pro-life. guest: certainly, candidates, as they go through time, can. change can i think someone might say the president, you could hold out certain examples of the president's record. changes positions. certainly between next tuesday and inauguration day, no matter who wins, you might see some curbing of some of these positions that were taken during the campaign. it's just a guess. but some of these things will change over time it. candidates will take a step back sometimes from their harder position th
another visit to ohio from mr. romney. he and aurora will bot and pau' appear together. the latest poll says it is now an actual tie. 49% to 49%. a remarkable crescendo. and with all of that, today on the sunday shows, the surrogates were battling it out on behalf of their candidates. watch. >> i also feel like the momentum is on our side. i have been at six of the rallies over the last week and at about a dozen victory centers around the state and the energy and enthusiasm is on our side this year. it is interesting to watch. we were down probably five to ten points before the debates. after the debates we are about dead even and moving our weigh. >> i do think that governor romney gained a little after the first debate. i think it leveled off and this race is exactly where you and i have been -- i said this to you many times over the course of the last year it is a close race but as you look at the battleground states we are even or ahead in virtually all of them in these critical states like, ohio. >> since the republican convention, paul ryan and mitt romney combined have been here
's insane. i think mr. mitt romney ought to be pushing back. >> as a quick extension, his idea instead of doing that with the economy back on its heels, raise taxes, which he will do if he gets reelected and impose more regulation on the economy. that's his solution to the problem we had before. >> i think the contrast in these closing arguments are very telling. obama decides to double down on the character assassination and class warfare, romney is talking bipartisanship, and he was a governor of a blue state. one sounds more presidential than the other. >> paul: the president is throwing out attempts to say, well, i'm going to get a big budget deal with congress, i real want bipartisan immigration deal, hey, maybe, even tax reform. >> this is really important, yeah, because he's being very critical of romney and last weeks we're seeing the glimmer of hope and change obama and trying to get that back and the testament with independent voters and women and they voted for him in 2008 because, again, he claimed to be a new type of politician. i don't think this was working. it's falling
lived in massachusetts when romney was the governor back in 2006, what have you. overall, mr. romney, governor romney at the time -- you hear how we set up a slush fund and all these great things he did for the state which are totally untrue. i have to say, i look at -- i live in new hampshire. the campaign itself, and this is my question, i guess, the campaign where he is changing positions from the time he was governor of massachusetts to what he says today, he has totally changed his whole direction. he is -- he was pro-like back then, now he is pro-life. guest: let's get that point. host: let's get that point. guest: candidates can change positions. the president, you can hold certain examples of the president's record where he changed positions. between next tuesday and inauguration day, no matter who wins you might see changing of the positions taken during the campaign. just a guess. these things well changed over time. candidates will take a step down from a harder positions they took in the campaign. is the nation -- nature of politics. host: green bay, wisconsin. democratic
across the aisle in a bipartisan way and got things done. >> steve: okay. mr. romney has talked about that, how he, you saw him at the debates talking about it, 75, 80% democrats, versus him, the lone republican governor. >> eric: fox news had a poll two nights ago that came out and found that 60% of people polled were interested in the economy and fiscal issues as their most important issues. mr. baker is on target with that. >> gretchen: let's talk about that working across the aisle. here is mitt romney. >> you want to see four more years with washington in gridlock? >> no. >> look, i know that the president wants to see four more years and that's his chant, four more years, four more years. our chant is this: five more days. all right [ cheers and applause ] by the way, i think i'll ask the leader, leader cantor, when was the last time you met with the president on the economy and jobs and the budget? he says almost a year. >> steve: meanwhile, it seems like the campaign has been going on for almost a year, actually longer. now it's down to not five days. it's four days. >> eric:
and the president off the campaign trail today, although we hear that perhaps he's going to -- mr. romney may do some storm-related events. is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea, nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. i've got a job to do here in new jersey that's much bigger than presidential politics and i could care less about any of that stuff. i have a job to do. i've got 2.4 million people out of power. i've got devastation on the shore. i've got floods in the northern part of my state. if you think right now i give a damn about presidential politics, then you don't know me. >> brian: i got to ask you, do you have enough firefighters and rescue people? are you asking for help from other states at this point if people are watching electric a state that's not affected, can they -- is there a place for them to go if they have the skills you need? >> sure. we are getting a lot of help. governor daniels from indiana sent us 22 fully staffed ambulances to help us move folks out of hospitals. they needed
tended to campaign most heavily in the western part of the state. for example, mr. romney has made several appearances in the western part of the state but has not made any appearances in the eastern part of the state. president obama has made quite a few appearances in the eastern part of the state but not recently. that is also true of michelle obama and vice president joe biden. they tend to campaign more in the eastern part of the state in the research triangle where their political strength has been. host: it has been mentioned the president has not been in north carolina since the convention. are people taking notice of that? guest: oh, yes, except for the convention, the president has not campaigned in north carolina since april. we have not really seen the principles here very much at all. governor romney was here a few weeks back and made an appearance in asheville but that was mainly to have a visit with billy graham which was important. it was an important message to send to religious conservatives that it was ok for them to vote for a mormon. aside from that, governor r

of the cspan voters are. these people can be persuaded to vote for mr. runyan. -- for romney. both campaigns will be out there working very hard to get the vote on election day. host: quick comment? caller: i wish the gentleman would look at the desk moines, iowa race. that was a very fevered endorsement that he gave. the economy is linked to what is going on in other countries. that is an endorsement that was given. thank you all. host: one final call and one tweet - this is in " the new york times" this morning -- this comes down to a county by county talent as we saw in florida -- county count as we saw in florida. guest: ironically, if al gore had asked for a statewide recounts in florida, he would have won. the supreme court would not have shut it down. the media came in afterwards and requested those ballots. he would have lost under the recounted s four which was to do only the high democratic counties. there were a lot of democratic votes for gore in those counties that were not the deep blue counties where he thought he would get the votes. the lesson i think the party iis learned i
. host: democrats line, go ahead. good morning. i was calling in to say that mr. romney wants nothing -- he wants for nog and that he is just -- nothing and he is just running for president for power. if he is elected we will go back to being barefoot and pregnant and the states as they're going right now are going to start becoming small countries if power is given to them. and people in the south will see the civil war type situation. >> we were talking about gender issues. do gender issueses whatever factor into voting there in wisconsin? host: sure, like anywhere else they go into i think the way people line up in both parties and i don't know if that's more true or less true in wisconsin than any other state but they're part of the debate here, sure. host: our independent line. caller: is this for me now? host: yes, go ahead. caller: i wasn't sure because you didn't list it properly. this is ken. host: we're running out of time. go ahead. caller: i wanted to mention i think there is a problem with semantics in this cub country and what i mean is everybody looks at the romney as h
the container was the flag in perfect condition. that's it on the flag pole next to mr. romney. i pulled out the flag. it was as if electricity was running through my arms. i think of the people who lived their lives for more than themselves. think of our men and women, their willingness to walk in danger's way for us. for liberty and freedom. it is part of the american character to give of oneself for something greater. the patriots -- who serve in the military -- and wh oserve in the homes. my sister, lynn, is in her 70's with 8 children. they're all married with kids of their own. the youngest, jeffrey, has downs syndrome. he is 43 now. her husband died years ago and she is with jeffrey. she has spent 43 years to making sure his life is as full and complete as hit can possibly be. a hero, to me. i think of the single moms across the country who are sving aving so they can have a good meal on the table at the end of the day. i think of the men and women working two jobs. they wrok two jobs so theyir ir kids can have the clothes others have. and the couples who won't have christmas this yea
for today. the president was supposed to be in colorado and wisconsin and mr. romney had planned to be in new hampshire. but this doesn't mean the campaigns are not still battling below the radar. the latest flash point, a romney tv ad running in ohio making this claim about gm. >> obama took chrysler and gm into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italians that are going to build jeeps in china. >> reporter: campaigning with former president clinton vice president biden blasted the ad as false. >> chrysler has felt obliged to go public and say there is no truth. they say jeep has no intentions of shifting production of its jeep models out of north america to china. >> reporter: while mitt romney is technically not campaigning today, he is doing a storm relief event, savannah, in the state of ohio. >> chuck, and a lot of folks are asking us this morning, is there a possibility with this widespread power outages that could last days if not weeks, is there a chance the election day itself could be delayed? >> it's very unlikely. look, the presidential election day is something that is

[applause] i'd like to introduce mrs. laura bush. thank you. [applause] >> thank you all very much. thank you all so much for coming out. i'm thrilled to have the chance to see you all. george and i have many happy memories of campaigning in michigan. it's great to be in detroit today and be here with you all and to have the chance to thank each and every one of you for the work you're doing. you're doing a really terrific job. you may know you've made in the whole united states you've made the 6th largest number of phone calls which is terrific. so we are grateful to you all for that. i also want to recognize your lieutenant governor. maybe he's gone on to the next stop i guess. but he was very very important in h
for president obama, that's pretty much the story, i think. >> mr. caputo, let me bring new you've in on this. the poll shows two point ahead for governor romney in florida, that within the margin of error. my team and i were struck with looking at the lines of people early voting in that state today. >> well, those lines are really going to be the indication of how this campaign is going to go. we've had gangbusters early voting turnout in florida. about two million people in a week. because of early voting, democrats have an edge and ballots cast of about 104,000 over republicans. republicans usually do well at mail and absentee ballots. democrats dominate early voting. but guess what? the legislature, rick scott shortened the early voting days. and relative to the early voting hours we had in 2008 in south florida, they essentially cut them by 22% or about 24 hours. so it's going to make a difference. what we're going to see on election day now is a lot of those folks who probably would have early voted, they're going to show up on election day and cast ballots. so the question is how many
like he's mr. coal. come on. come on. you know that's not on the level. does anybody ever actually look at that guy and think he's really into coal? >> cenk: ha, ha, ha, romney is not into coal enough. if you elect an democrat we'll really be into coal. even into coal even more. climate change, mtv who gives a damn about that. and did it help? did your strategy a piece oil and coal, did it help? no, super pacs run by the coal and oil industries are running this ad against president obama any way. >> we can build on that rock for generations to come. but our current leadership in washington has taken us down a different path. a path paved by heavy-handed epa regulation. a path relying on facts not fuel. a path leading away from energy independence. a path that fails to recognize low-cost energy and desirable high-paying jobs. >> cenk: yeah, nonsense. the reality is president obama has been terrific in weakening regulations. let me give a quote from the "washington post." obama has actually finalized fewer regulations than either clinton or bush at the same point in their terms. thank you
, we will finally see help for america's middle class. host: that was mitt romney in iowa on friday. let's hear from richard in milwaukee, wisconsin on the democratic line. caller: good morning, c-span, and good morning mr. glover. i have a question on the associated press. where do you get your polling from? at work we have 90 people and last week we took our own polling. that was in a secret ballot. everybody said that they never got calls in the last 30 days, calls from anybody. so we took our own secret ballot. obama comes out with 77 people. so that is my question. thank you. guest: well, thank you. by the way, i will be in milwaukee a couple weeks after the election. it's one of my favorite cities. so i enjoy taking a call from up here. if we do bowling and we have a polling firm contract with that does are pulling. we have a sample of 700 people nationwide, so not everybody gets a phone call. our polling is done in conjunction with other news organizations. but we don't do as much poling as other news organizations do, because our feeling is that if you spend a lot of money o
from ohio. good morning, john. caller: good morning. good morning, mr. ryan. i am calling to ask you if you're familiar with the ballots that are -- they're having trouble with in switching over when they're voting for mitt romney and at the end the check mark is then over on the democratic side? are you familiar with them? there's been a couple of programs of it. one of them is right here in columbus, ohio. where they've had a few, i'm not going to say a gaggle of them but there's been quite a few. but then i heard you earlier on the delphi workers, that you and senator brown was trying to work something out for them. i just watched a program on that where they were interviewing the delphi workers themselves. they said they have no pension. they're not getting any pension. so it's kind of -- this kind of spin sounds like it's coming from you there a little bit. >> congressman ryan? >> well you know. it's a tough situation, i will tell you that, with the delphi salary folks. we have been working on it a long, long time. my former coaches and family members who are in that group, i'm
that 20 million figure. i think we can do a lot better and governor romney certainly have the program to do that. in ohio, we have proven that it can be done. host: judas on the democratic line from ohio, you are on with mr. bennett. -- judith on the democratic line. caller: i am maybe 5 miles from there. i have two sons who have graduated from private colleges and that they cannot find jobs in their field. they graduated from college in like 2002 and my other son graduated in 2001 from american university. they are unable to find jobs. they want to raise the retirement age again to 72 or something. i retired. i am a retired nurse. i personally do not understand why we keep raising the retirement age for elderly people who really need to enjoy their retirement, okay? host: mr. bennett. guest: judith brings up two good points. 50% of graduates right now are unable to find jobs in the field have chosen to study. we think that just borders on criminal after they have made that investment. in many cases, they have had to borrow substantial sums of money to complete their college education
